Cold Blast to Start Fall Break Week

Don't be fooled by today's mild temperatures.  A blast of cold air will move into Utah tomorrow and yield some unseasonably cool temperatures on Monday for the start of the U's Fall Break week. 

The NAM forecasts the dry surface front to be pushing through northern Utah early tomorrow morning, so tomorrow is a day during which temperatures will struggle to rise. 

By Monday morning, the upper level trough is centered near Vernal and 700-mb temperatures are dow to around -7ºC. 

Such a temperature wouldn't be a record based on historical upper-air soundings, but is well below average. 

And the NWS forecast shows how the bottom drops out after today. 

Monday looks to be a below average temperature day statewide.  Pity this system looks to only produce some snow showers and perhaps an inch or two of snow in the central Wasatch.
